Subject [jira] [Created] (IGNITE-1497) Support CPU architectures different from x86/x64
Date Wed, 16 Sep 2015 15:39:45 GMT
Denis Magda created IGNITE-1497:

             Summary: Support CPU architectures different from x86/x64
                 Key: IGNITE-1497
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IGNITE-1497
             Project: Ignite
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: general
            Reporter: Denis Magda

Ignite widely uses {{Unsafe}} instance throughout the code and the usage is mostly based on
the fact that the platform will be running on a little-endian x86/x64 machine.

As an example the following classes work with short, int, long and other type values bigger
than 1 byte in size without taking CPU endiannes into account:
- {{DirectByteBufferStream}};
- {{PortableObjectOffheapImpl}};
- {{GridUnsafeDataOutput}};
- etc.

This leads to VM crashes on different CPU architectures:
- IGNITE-1493;
- http://stackoverflow.com/questions/32592881/apache-ignite-arm-unsafe-getfloat-segmentation-fault

All the classes that use {{Unsafe}} in Ignite have to be revisited and modified in a way to
support different CPU architectures.
